Getting along with other inmates
Time off for good behavior
Food and Commissary
JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Clark: When I was moved to a pod it wasn't that hard for me but there were many others were fighting other inmates, stealing, arguing with the jail officers and other jail officials and conducting vandalism and disruption. Probably one fight every other day.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Clark: I mostly kept to myself. I kept quiet. I did not get engaged in any card or other passing time games. I didn't get engaged in what was on TV or making up any pod rules about showers or phones. I ate in my room and when there was a fight I walked away and ignored it and told the jail officers I didn't see or hear anything.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Clark: No choices. I had some turnover but not much. I had two cellmates there for murder charges and one who was facing 35 years for dealing and possessing heroin. It seemed like it was constant
